Vacuum gloves: climb like Spider-Man, look like Doc Octopus

This is pretty cool; I’m not sure how I missed it when it came out late last year. It was on British TV, I suppose, and with me not even watching much American TV, it’s understandable. It’s from a show called Bang Goes the Theory, which you can watch more of at BBC if you’re in the UK or skilled at spoofing your location.

In the meantime this video is exciting enough for me for one night. Looks like a hell of a workout. There’s more information on the system over at this recent Daily Mail article — that’s a consolation: they appear to be as behind in local affairs as I am in foreign ones.
